Before we start our study time today, please take a minute and go before our Lord in prayer.
In verses 8-9, we are given several commands. Which is the hardest for you?
“You are a stubborn, opinionated woman!”“Oh, yeah? Well, you are a hard-working, caring man and I appreciate you.”
What happens as a result of returning blessing for insult (vs. 9)?
Besides speaking blessings to those who insult us, how else might we bless them?
If we want to have a better life (who doesn’t?) and see good days, what must we do (10-12)?
Is blessing for insult just a suggestion? What does verse 9 say?
Dear Father,Thank You that because You bless us, You call us to bless others. Help us to stop basing our treatment of others on how they treat us but on how You treat us. We can bless others because we have already been blessed by You. Help us to stop and think before we speak. There is no room for insults in the mouth of a Christ follower. May the words we speak be the words You would speak.In Jesus Name,Amen
